Are you unsure of the best routes for engagement with public policy?

Do you want to know more about when and how to communicate research to policymakers?

In this session of Up Close & Policy we hear from the CLOSER Group at UCL and the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology on the challenges and benefits of running an event for academics and policymakers. The seminar will focus on their shared experience in hosting an event on childhood obesity in partnership with the All Party Parliamentary Health Group.

Come along for your chance to ask the experts about the opportunities and pitfalls in engaging with the world of policy, find out the insights they have gained, and hear what they consider are the key lessons for successful engagement.

Lunch will be provided as part of the seminar.
